2019 Bios

Mason Wagner, Assistant Director

Mason is a creator, director, actor, and producer based in Missoula, MT. He graduated with a BFA in Acting from the University of Montana, where he cut his teeth touring with the Montana Repertory Theatre's Great Gatsby and All My Sons. Upon graduating, he founded BetweenTheLines Theatre, which remains devoted to producing contemporary and new plays. Directing credits include: The Flick, Constellations, Stupid F*cking Bird, Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, and AD for In The Snow (BetweenTheLines); 1984 (Pendragon Theatre Regional Tour); and Denmark is a Prison (international collaboration with the Moradokmai Theatre School in Thailand). After Dirty Sexy, Mason goes directly into rehearsal for Buffalo Play - a devised work inspired by those Yellowstone  tourists that put a baby bison in their SUV. It goes up in Missoula in April before transferring to NYC. He is pleased as pie to be on the road with this dirty, sexy, chocolatey crew!

Megan Brown, Stage Manager

Megan is a lover of theatre, road trips and alpacas. She wanted to combine all 3 but the alpacas won’t fit in the car. Megan graduated with a BFA in Business Management Information Systems from the University of Montana. After celebrating the holiday season with Elf: The Musical at the Missoula Community Theatre, she is ready to take on her next project, The Dirty Sexy Chocolate Show 2019 Tour.

Reid Reimers, Performer

Reid is ‘cheffing in his pants’ with delight to be returning to this show for the 4th year! A 30-year veteran of the stage, he holds a Masters in Theatre from the University of Montana. He’s worked on countless shows with dozens of companies, playing everything from Cowboys to Clowns, Greek Gods to Gangsters and Homespun Heroes to Homicidal Aliens. As an arts educator, Reid has shared his love of theatre with thousands of kids both locally and nationally.  Actively avoiding an “Adult Job”, he’s also a producer, karaoke DJ, event coordinator, collegiate lecturer and host of the popular YouTube science education channel: Scishow Space, among a myriad of other goofy side gigs. When not teaching and performing, Reid is an avid international globetrotter and houseplant aficionado.

You may recognize Missoula’s Third-Favorite Actor (Missoula Independent, 2018) from Avenue Q, Holocene, The Little Mermaid, Spring Awakening, The Brewery Follies in Virginia City, or the sold-out runs of their original shows Kelsey Grammer IS Abraham Lincoln LIVE! For One Night Only, No Refunds: A Piece of Theatrical Garbage, and A Literal Garbage Fire. Sean has played PreppyPants twice before - third time’s the charm!

Kirsten is thrilled to be back for a third year of dirty sexy chocolate fun! Originally from central Ohio, Kirsten graduated from Butler University in Indianapolis with a degree in Vocal Performance. After working with Weathervane Playhouse and the Indianapolis Opera Company, Kirsten toured for Missoula Children's Theatre for 2 years before moving to Montana in 2015 to continue to work with MCT as Director of Performing Arts Camps. Missoula audiences most recently saw Kirsten as Ursula in The Little Mermaid with Missoula Community Theatre. Kirsten would like to thank Jeremy Sher for writing this silly show, and each of her sexy cast-mates for being so much fun to work with every day.

John Knispel, Performer

John is a Billings, MT native and graduate of the University of Montana with degrees in Music Education and Vocal Performance, both of which he has used at a semi-regular basis to pursue a career in the performing arts.  Last seen onstage in Missoula as “Farquaad” in Missoula Children’s Theatre production of Shrek in 2015, his endless and reckless pursuit of applause led him on journeys through Montana, the U.S. and around the world.  He’s absurdly happy to be collaborating with such an amazing group of chocolate obsessed weirdos. Special thanks to Señor Sher for this wonderful opportunity.
